What are Struts and Shocks?
Struts are a part of the car's overall suspension system and hold the body of the car off the ground. Removing the struts would cause a car to fall.
Struts incorporate many suspension assembly parts such as the coil spring and shock absorber, and affect your cars steering and alignment. They provide support to the suspension springs. Their main job is to act as shock absorbers to support the weight of the vehicle and ensure a smooth ride.
The only job of a shock is to absorb bumps on the road. Like struts, shocks level the car when you drive over a bump and they keep the car from bouncing down the road. Without shocks or struts, the tires could leave the ground when they encounter rough terrain such as potholes and bumps, posing a threat to the safety of the passengers or other motorists and pedestrians.
